Certainly "Tragic Care", the second album of Folly & The Hunter, is characterized by a certain tragic according to the title. On the other hand, tragedy is usually accompanied by pain and loss. And the band, which has chosen Montreal as its base for some time now, doesn't want to go that far. Certainly the songs are sad, melancholic and deeply moving. But in any case always to take positively. There is the voice of Nick Vallee, which sounds like a shouting urgent through thick fog, the discreet soundscapes of his fellow musicians Christopher Fox and Laurie Torres, consisting of banjos, guitars, glockenspiels and organs as well as strings dripping into the atmospheric concept from time to time; the listener is truly bedded on clouds with "Tragic Care". "Whatever We Can Make" is pure euphony and "There Are No Great Redeemers" folk in slow motion, quasi Mumford & Sons throttled to a standstill. And "Mask" evokes a warm spring rain, which develops into a refreshing strong shower. Gripping and liberating.
